One of the several goals of the CNND is the training and education of basic science researchers and clinicians about infectious and inflammatory diseases of the nervous system.  Our principal educational meeting is an annual symposium, held each autumn, focusing on a specific theme. A poster session is held in the afternoon following morning talks, with awards for the top posters.
